If not in a liquidity trap, monetary policy is more effective than fiscal policy.

A.K
BobTurner

Definitions: A "liquidity trap" is when interest rates cannot be lowered enough to make a significant change in the economy. (In other words, the zero-bound problem). "Monetary policy" is the use of open market operations (buying and selling securities) by a central bank to influence interest rates. "Fiscal policy" is the use of deficit spending to stimulate the economy. Alterations to these definitions may be considered. First round: state that you accept the debate. Actual debate will...

There is nothing wrong with incest between consenting adults.

I would like to thank Con in advance for accepting this debate. I would also like to take some time to define what incest is. Incest is sexual activity between family members and close relatives. In this debate we are talking about incest between consenting adults and I in no way condone rape or paedophilia. I feel the burden of proof is on con to explain what it is, exactly, that is immoral or unethical about incest. I look forward to a good debate....

Not many people each school lunch because, well school lunch isn't really that delicious. I don't eat school lunch because I had a bad experience when I was younger, but I won't get into that.

I'm guessing! I'm not entirely sure there was a Chinese restaurant. Now, here's the difference. The calo...

Could China Defeat the USA in a War?

While skimming through the web in war related subjects, I noticed allot of arguments about a war between China and the USA. I personally don't think such a thing would ever happen while the world remains intact, but it is still an interesting topic. I DO NOT think china could beat the USA. First off, it does't matter if we have a huge debt because this debt is owned by China. The reason their economy is intact is because of this debt. Without the U.S. China wold fall apart, but without China, mo...
